Known for its authentic Lao-Thai menu, Smile Lao Thai is a Tempe Thai spot serving curry, veggie egg rolls, noodle dishes, and more. Smile Lao Thai offers a lengthy menu of appetizers, salads, and soups, plus sections for fresh spring rolls, noodle soups, stir-fried entrees, curry entrees, fried rice, and barbecue. The avocado curry comes highly recommended. Lunch specials are popular here thanks to a spicy lemon grass stir-fry, and red, green, and yellow curry options. Desserts include Laotian sticky rice and coconut pineapple ice cream, while specialty beverages are also offered like Thai tea and Thai coffee. Smile Lao Thai is set in a strip mall south of the Arizona State University campus, and features a simple and modern dining area, plus take out, delivery, and catering services.
